Audio Engineering & Video Editing (AEVE)

Enrolled in AEVE, students will experience the world of audio mixing and editing their projects utilizing state of the art technology and facilities, learning and applying skills used in Studio Recording, Digital Audio, and Live Sound. Students will produce audio tracks for use in various projects such as vocal music, narration for a documentary, or digital videos. Students will learn to process multiple recorded takes and edit them into one final track, to produce the highest quality product possible. In conjunction, students will expand their talents and abilities by adding visual components to their audio project to deliver a memorable experience for their audiences. With new abilities in Audio Engineering and Video Editing, students will end the course with a final project of their choice that will be shared with the community.
